New Zealand television journalist David Farrier is well known for covering light entertainment and quirky news, which is how he stumbled across a phenomenon called ‘Competitive Endurance Tickling’.
After requesting an interview with someone who has competed in New Zealand, Farrier received the following response.
Jane O’Brian Media, the company who films this bizarre ‘sport’, state on their site that they’re looking for young male models to participate, offering high wages, complimentary five star accommodation and celebrity photographers. The websites intro film is creepy as hell, and between that and the response Farrier received, he knew there was as story here.
Digging deeper he discovered that this world of bizarre competitions was definitely not what it appeared to be.
